Down on the Farm

Meet draft horses, chickens, peacocks, rabbits, sheep, goats, cows and pigs at Kidwell Farm, Frying Pan Park's working farm of the 1930s era. Pet the friendly farm animals, take a hayride or watch the farm hands at work. At the Kidwell Farm House, you can sit for a spell on the porch or take a tour to see how farm families lived in the 1930s. Kidwell Farm is open daily 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Groups are welcome, and school programs are available by appointment. Call for tour information.

The Country Store

Located in the former Vocational Agriculture Shop (c. 1920), the Frying Pan Country Store is a onestop shop with something for everyone -- books of all kinds, toys, snacks and drinks, decorative items for the home and unique gifts for farm, equestrian and history enthusiasts. Open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. March - Dec. Hours of operation are limited in Jan. and Feb. Call the park for more information. 703-435-3710

Historic Buildings

Floris Schoolhouse: Grades one through nine were taught in the Floris Schoolhouse from 1911 to 1920. The schoolhouse is now used for arts and crafts, fitness programs, camps and scout and children's classes.

Blacksmith Shop: Joseph Moffet and his son Henry operated the Moffet Blacksmith Shop in Herndon from 1904 to 1955. The shop was moved to Frying Pan Farm Park in 1975 and contains much of the blacksmith's original equipment. The shop is open to the public during special events.

Spring Meeting House: Built in 1791, the Frying Pan Spring Meeting House served as a hospital during the Civil War and boasts connections to Patrick Henry, James Madison and the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Visitors may stroll the grounds; the building is open by appointment only.
